Default auto cancel turn signal

anyway to disable this.
did a search on topic found no info.
read the online manual said nothing about holding or tapping button.
this auto cancel is gonna get me killed almost hit by a car turning as my blinker decided to turn off before I got to intersection.

I have had the same issue and it's become almost predictable. As far as I can tell the turn signals are cancelled based on some combination your throttle input, clutch, shifting, and possibly tilt sensor. The most common spots for them to auto cancel on me is when I get over into the turn lane or if a light turns green as I'm braking and I get off the clutch and roll on the throttle.

It's super annoying and dangerous, but I've learned to check the signal in those situations. I haven't gotten to the point where I want to disable the auto cancel, but I do believe there is a module that controls it which is suppose to be sensitive to the electrical load on the front turn signals, which makes me believe it can be bypassed or removed.

Dont know if this will help, but you can hold the button over & the signal will stay on, then immediatly shut off when released.

+1, if I'm just lane changing on the highway sometimes I'll just hold the button and then release it when I get my lane.

I've also found on the highway if you press release the black button it will stay on for a while if you don't lean too far over when changing lanes.

Sometimes it does turn off before you finish changing lanes, then I'll just press and hold it until I get in that lane.

You just need to get use to how it works and then it's not much of a problem.

..it seems to me to be more of a tilt sensor. After turning, the blinker stays on unless i jerk the bike upright.. anyone else have that experience??

Default Turn Signal Auto Cancel

My 2012 Hammer has what appears to be a mercury tilt switch down in front of the back tire. It's a little white box about 1.5" x .5". One could probably just bypass that.

Tilt sensor would be to kill the bike if you crash or fall over.
I drought very much it has any thing to do with turn signals.
